Postdoctoral Fellowship

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Maternal and Child Health

The Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is pleased to announce a postdoctoral fellowship in Maternal and Child Health (MCH). This two year postdoctoral training program provides mentorship and support for fellows to develop their MCH research agendas and link efforts to MCH public health practice. We aim to enhance fellows’ skills in research, teaching, curriculum development and prepare fellows for excellence in MCH research and leadership positions in academic institutions.

We encourage applications from those who seek further training to refine their MCH and public health skills in anticipation of an academic MCH career. Candidates who have completed doctoral training in varied disciplines are eligible to apply; preference will be given to candidates with research oriented doctorates (e.g., PhD, DrPH, ScD) as well as those with clinical degrees (e.g., MD, DO, DDS) and with an MPH/MHS focused on research and substantive knowledge of MCH. Preference will be given to applicants who wish to focus on domestic MCH work. Graduates who have demonstrated scientific rigor in their graduate research training and come from historically disadvantaged groups by virtue of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or other related factors are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be US citizens or hold a permanent resident visa.

Fellows will have the opportunity to engage in research activities, acquire grant preparation skills, publish scholarly articles, advance teaching skills, enhance presentation skills, and network in the broader MCH community before seeking an academic position. The fellowship supports salary, health insurance, coursework (if desired) research expenses, and travel to attend MCH professional meetings. Successful completion of the fellowship entails meeting learning objectives set by the fellow and her/his mentor.

If you are interested, please send a cover letter, CV, graduate transcript(s), writing sample, personal statement, and names and contact information for three references to Kristen McCormick, Senior Academic Program Coordinator.
